The Expanse season 6 trailer: the war is on

While it’s an embarassment that The Stretch’s upcoming 6th season will be its last (a minimum of in the meantime), the brand-new trailer for the last 6 episodes reveals that the sci-fi drama is heading out with a bang.

When recently restored Secretary General Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) sends out Bobbi Draper (Frankie Adams) to the Rocinante to hire Holden’s (Steven Strait) team for a brand-new objective, they’re as soon as again tossed onto the frontlines in the war versus Marcos (Keon Alexander) and his Free Navy. However tired after investing years defending humankind and still processing the sorrow over Alex’s (Cas Anvar) death, the lovely bond the Roci household has actually developed threatens to collapse under the intensifying weights of their pasts and responsibilities to humankind’s future.

Making matters worse is that Marcos’ army isn’t the only thing the Roci crew will have to contend with. The vicious aliens that exterminated the Ring Builders pose an increasing threat after obliterating a passing ship in the season 5 finale, calling into question the safety of the Ring Gates. However, the added danger that comes with traveling through the Ring makes it more difficult for those in Sol system to interfere with whatever Admiral Duarte has actually planned now that he has obtained the protomolecule sample. (We’re guessing it’s nothing good!)

The Expanse season 6 will adapt the sixth novel in James S.A. Corey’s series, Babylon’s Ashes, as well as the novella Strange Dogs, which follows a young Laconian girl who comes into contact with a pack of “dogs” that possess unsettling abilities. The trailer gives us our first glimpse of this creatures and leaves us wondering how they might be connected to whatever nefarious plans Duarte is cooking up. But perhaps the bigger question is how the Prime Video series will adapt both works into only a six-episode season.

“Six episodes to do this much material is difficult,” showrunner Naren Shankar said earlier this year at a New York Comic Con panel. “What it does give you is intensity. Every episode feels as intense as it could possibly be. You never feel like you’re letting your foot off the gas pedal. By the time you get to the end, it feels cathartic.”

The Expanse returns on Friday, Dec. 10, with new episodes releasing weekly on Prime Video.
